Make Your House Pop with Curbside Appeal

Let’s talk about curbside appeal and how to make your house pop. You can have a five star landscaping job but faded paint and your house will blend into the background or worse, look shabby. If being the house that everyone talks about in a bad way isn’t on your radar, then consider the difference a great paint job can do for your curbside appeal.

Check out the before photo for one of our client’s houses:

The grass is green, lots of great trees…but that faded paint…this is a major no.

Now, check out the after photo when Next Door Painting updated this house’s appearance and created some great curbside appeal. See the difference a great paint job can make for your house? Please consider us for the interior and exterior painting of your home.

Next Door Painting’s First Step to Exterior Painting Success

Power washing is such an important step to begin the exterior painting process. Skipping this step could lead to a disaster.

Au contraire, if the surface is not properly prepared, it will have a direct effect on the longevity of the paint application.

Exactly, when you invest in a paint job you want it to last!

dirty

And not look like this. By using a power washer we are able to remove loose paint, mold, grime, dust, and dirt from the walls of your home or business.

featuredbannerHi!!!

Sorry I’ve been M.I.A lately (again) life has been supremely busy. How do bloggers blog daily anyhow?
The days have been escaping me!
